Description

Physical form

Solution in 8 M urea, 50 mM Tris, 0.1 M β-mercaptoethanol and 0.1% sodium azide, pH 8.4

Application

Keratins are important for the mechanical stability and integrity of epithelial cells and tissues. Some keratins also have regulatory functions and are involved in intracellular signaling pathways, e.g. protection from stress, wound healing, and apoptosis.

General description

Keratins are characteristic intermediate filament proteins of the epithelia. There are 54 functional keratin genes in humans. This diverse group of cytoskeletal scaffolding proteins form intermediate filament networks which provide structural support to keratinocytes that maintain the integrity of the skin. Expression of keratin genes is usually regulated by differentiation of the epidermal cells within the stratifying squamous epithelium.It is the primary component of hair, skin and nails
